Alternative hood for FE 70-200/2.8 GM II - is there one?

I’ve had my new FE 70-200/2.8 GM II now for a while and find with my camera bag finning a slot to hold the lens with its wide hood is problematic. The hood is very nice but it’s diameter is large so it tight to fit in.  I thought I could get the smaller 85/1,4 GM hood to fit but it won’t lock even though it does at first appears to fit.

Does anyone know of another 77mm lens that I could find out about its hood? I was able to work around this issue in the Canon RF system with their 70-200/2.8L and their 50/1.2L which had a small hood which help pack the bag smaller.

if you know of a hood that might work please let me know. Thank you.
